In a statement released today to the press, SCEA senior director of corporate communications Patrick Seybold confirmed that Sony will be delivering its answer to Microsoft's Project Natal before the end of the year.
2010: Battle of the Non-Nintendo Motion Controllers is a go!
When Sony unveiled its motion controller during E3 2009, the company said the controller would be released in spring 2010, but we haven’t seen too much about it since then. I contacted Sony to make sure the 2010 release window was correct, and the answer I received was, "Yes, this year.”
Whether Sony will in fact deliver on the previously mentioned spring release remains to be seen, but given how little we’ve seen of the technology since it was first revealed (it still doesn't have a name), it doesn’t seem likely. Unless of course Sony is planning to surprise everyone with a stealthy release. Then again, Sony doesn’t have the strongest track record when it comes to keeping secrets, so I wouldn’t count on that either.
When do you think Sony will release its motion controller?
